Hyderabad: Akarshana Sathish, an 11-year-old girl, has set up three libraries in Hyderabad. She began by gathering books from her neighbours, classmates, and members of her family. In total, she was able to collect 4834 books which she used to set up the libraries for children.
The one at MNJ Cancer Children's Hospital has 1036 books while another at Sanath Nagar Police Station has 829 books.
She set up a third library at the Special-cum-Children Home and Observation Home for Girls at Nimboliadda, Hyderabad with 625 books. The library was inaugurated by Shikha Goel IPS and Bharati Hollikeri IAS on Wednesday.
Talking about her passion, Akarshana Sathish said, "During Covid times, I collected books from family friends, school friends, and my neighbours. I collected a total of more than 4800. I have already set up two libraries... Here, I have set up my third library here at the Observation Home for Girls at Nimboliadda, Kachiguda. Here we have set up a total of 625 books... My inspiration is my father. He has undertaken many social service works and I want to follow his path."
Shikha Goe, IPS, said, "I congratulate Akarshana, an 11-year-old of Hyderabad who has got this idea of donating books and creating libraries in places where no libraries exist." (with ANI inputs)
